Anthony Joshua wants Barack Obama, The Rock, and Beyoncé ringside at his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr

Anthony Joshua says he wants to have Barack Obama, The Rock, and Beyoncé at ringside to watch him rematch Andy Ruiz Jr in December.
Joshua lost all four of his world title belts to the Mexican in June, however, he has a chance for redemption when at the rematch in Saudi Arabia on December 7.
”Barack Obama, The Rock, Will Smith, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, some Instagram models …” Joshua told TMZ Sports when asked about a dream guest list for the fight.
The defeat in June was one of boxing’s biggest ever upsets, but Joshua has vowed to bounce back, telling World Boxing News that he’s ready to “show people the art of bouncing back.”
And it seems the 29-year-old is already getting excited about the trip to Asia, having put together a dream list of stars he hopes will be on hand to watch him try and avenge the first defeat of his professional career.
“Barack Obama, The Rock, Will Smith, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, some Instagram models …” Joshua said when asked if there was anybody he’d like to see ringside.
“I’m getting to the fantasy part of my brain now! Everyone and anyone is welcome!”
Joshua’s defeat to Ruiz in June was one of the biggest boxing upset’s of all time alongside Buster Douglas’ 1990 win over Mike Tyson and Hasim Rahman’s win over Lennox Lewis in 2001.
The Englishman was knocked down four times — twice in the third round — before the fight in June was stopped in the seventh.
Joshua says that he has learned from his mistakes, though, and that the crowd in Saudi Arabia, including perhaps his star-studded guest list, can expect a very different outcome this time around.
“I took my ‘L’ like a man and I’m going to show people the art of bouncing back,” said Joshua during a recent interview with World Boxing News.
“That is what this fight is to me. I’ve got to resurrect myself and my spirit and re-enlighten myself. I’m going for the second time to become the Heavyweight Champion of the World.”
